From Whitefish Montana we headed west, stopping briefly in Spokane to visit my brother and sister (Jamie and Mary)…
.. and spending one night with Roberta’s cousin (Linda) in Vancouver, WA.
We then headed to the Oregon coast to spend three days at one of our favorite spots from out Oregon Coast hike (https://rjfmac.com/home/oregon-coast-trail-2019/) back in 2019.
We had two days of lovely weather and one rainy day but all of them were cool (compared to Houston!).
And we did one non-beach hike that was wet and muddy with almost no views. We had wanted to repeat the Cascade Head hike we did in 2019 but the trail was closed (Covid?) so we switched to another trail (the Rainforest Trail).
We did not finish the hike as the trail became more and more overgrown as we progressed.
After three days of beach walks and wine on our balcony overlooking the Pacific we headed back east…. Houston is calling!
